Collapse of the Geftakys Ministry in Omaha

The excommunication of George Geftakys and repentance of elders and leading brothers in Fullerton, California, precipitated a call for repentance to the leadership of Assemblies in other locations. The first three stories from Chuck V., Judy Geftakys, and Jon LeG. (along with those of several folks who wish to remain unnamed, and Brent's unrelenting call to repentance) led to Mike Zach at last surrendering his hopes of replacing George as his heir apparent, and the Omaha Assembly dissolved.
